We were delighted today when we went to collect our beautifully framed painting. We had an idea of the frame we wanted, but were offered lots of advice when we arranged an appointment to choose it down to the best glass to use. The frame has been crafted beautifully and we would not hesitate to recommend Otters Pool Studios. The professional advice and eye for detail all add to the service.

We had 5 x canvases framed, 2 x were large 1.2 square, the others smaller. Jon was very thorough at the consultation. We had all the paintings framed with a ‘flag gap’ frame for a contemporary appearance. Jon said the framing would be complete in a month and he delivered inside this programme. We are delighted. OPS was recommended to us by a professional artist. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jon very highly.

When it comes to framing, Jon is a magician. Over the years I have had 6 large frames completed by Otters Pool Studio - and there is nowhere I would ever go again. The craftmanship, quality and durability is first class. Communications (despite a global pandemic) has always been excellent and when describing what you want, Jon will always give his honest and professional opinion/advice. Quite simply, he is a master of his craft.

Jon's care and attention to detail were first-rate. He provided helpful suggestions and was happy to take extra time to demonstrate several of the options for a large mount. The job was completed beautifully, and very promptly.

I contacted Jon for advice on framing one print and a technical drawing of an engine block. The print was straight forward but the technical drawing was slightly more challenging, given the size and layout. I did not want to lose the draftsman's details from the lower right hand of the drawing. Jon and I chatted about folding over the last quarter of the drawing and replicating the drafting details.
The result is perfect, Jon replicated and added the detail in a small window in the bottom right of the frame, which was far more than I expected.

Thank you

I bought a print for my wife which I needed to be framed, but wanted the frame to match one on a previous print I had bought from Whitewall Galleries. Sadly, Whitewall couldn't frame the print for me (for insurance reasons), but recommended me to Jon At Otters Pool Studios. What an excellent recommendation!

Unfortunately, Jon couldn't match the frame, but Whitewall agreed to sell me a matching frame. Jon collected the frame from Guildford for me, and did an amazing job to match the mounts. I took the print over to him and he mounted it in the frame while I waited and we chatted. The time zoomed past and we came away with the mounted print in the frame, all professionally wrapped for me to give to my wife.

Price was amazingly reasonable too. I would highly recommend anyone, who wants a print to be professionally framed, to book an appointment with Jon at Otters Pool Studio!

Over the years, Jon has completed well over 20 framing jobs for me. The quality of workmanship is second to none and all at a very reasonable price.
I have no hesitation whatever in recommending Otters Pool Studio. If it can be displayed in a frame, and believe me I've taken some 'strange' items to Jon, he never fails artistically to create the perfect presentation.
